Homelessness Partnering Strategy: Em12-25/2016E-PDF

highlights - 2016 coordinated point-in-time count of homelessness in Canadian communities.

“This report provides a first look at the key findings of the 2016 Coordinated Point‑in‑Time (PiT) Count. These findings include the basic demographics of participants surveyed, as well as their reported experiences of homelessness, their income sources and their reasons for losing their housing. The results highlighted in this report are based on the surveys conducted across the 32 participating communities. These surveys were done in large and small urban communities, as well as in relatively rural and remote communities. In June 2016, the Government of Canada announced that a second count would take place during March and April 2018. Information from this second count, when compared with 2016 count findings, will help communities understand changes in local homeless populations over time. As more communities participate in future coordinated counts, findings from the Coordinated PiT Count can help to develop a truly national understanding of homelessness in Canada"--Intro., p. 1.
